Playa Los Arcos: Mexican family ambience in Puerto Vallarta's picturesque Old Town Carol Wheeler

"Hotel Playa Los Arcos is the prettiest hotel in Puerto Vallarta's Old Town," a Canadian travel writer told me. I think she's right. But more than pretty, Playa Los Arcos is traditionally Mexican, from the design that sets the rooms around a central patio to the décor, the music and the staff uniforms — restaurant personnel dress as charros or gentleman horsemen, and housekeepers wear the colorful full skirts of folkloric dancers. read more

An oasis of comfort in Ajijic: Casa del Sol Bed and Breakfast Inn

In Mexico, it is said you never know what's behind the walls. Typical of Spanish architecture, most homes have high walls around them, affording privacy and sanctuary. It is often impossible to tell if it is a small house or a grand estate behind the walls. This is true of the Casa del Sol Bed & Breakfast Inn in the heart of Ajijic — a 16th century village on Mexico's Lake Chapala, just one hour south of the major metropolis of Guadalajara. read more

Villas Buena Vida on Mexico's Nayarit Riviera is a favorite with families and snowbirds

As sunlight flooded my room, I opened my eyes to see pelicans gliding in formation above the blue Mexican Pacific. I stretched, brewed a pot of coffee, and enjoyed a steaming cup on the balcony overlooking the beach as the world awakened. Life is laid back and casual in the Mexico town of Rincon de Guayabitos, and hotel Villas Buena Vida offers all the creature comforts for a quiet vacation in the sun. read more

Zacatecas: an easy step into Mexico Allan Cogan

"Zacatecas is the town everyone wants to go back to," a friend said to me when I mentioned that we were going there. It is a charming, colonial city, and a fairly well-to-do university town with nice hotels, friendly, well-dressed people and some good attractions. In fact, on that first day, we liked it so much we decided to stay another night read more

Copper Canyon, Chihuahua, Mexico by Richard D. Fisher Reviewed by Allan Cogan

I suspect this may turn out more like a travel article than a book review. In late March we took a tour through the length of the Copper Canyon and I find it difficult to know how to write about this book without bringing in various aspects of the Canyon trip itself. It really is a spectacular journey and Richard Fisher's account does total justice to the subject matter. This is a large format quality paperback and it contains hundreds of excellent photos of the people and places one encounters along the way. I can't imagine a better souvenir to take away. read more

Driving from Guadalajara to Laredo and back Allan Cogan

My wife and I have driven from the Lakeside area to Laredo a few times on what always seemed to us, looking at the map, to be the shortest route, taking Highway 23 to Zacatecas and highway 54 from there to Saltillo, finishing the trip on Highway 85 via Monterrey. Starting early in the morning, it was easy to make Saltillo by early afternoon. Laredo was an easy hop the next morning. However, a couple of experiences on that route made us reconsider. read more
